Spicy Chipotle Mexican Chocolate Martini
Nothing goes better with a nice Spicy Mexican Chocolate Martini then Churros!
Below is my favorite recipe for Mexican Chocolate Martinis, and if you really want to go all the way for the Churro recipe!
Chocolate Chipotle Powder, recipe follows
1 1/2 ounces dark chocolate liqueur
1 1/2 ounces chocolate vodka
1 1/2 ounces tequila (preferable 100 percent agave reposado)
1 1/2 coffee flavor liqueur (recommended: Kahlua)
Chocolate Chipotle Powder:
2 tablespoons high quality cocoa powder
1 tablespoon ground chipotle (dried, smoked jalapenos)
1 tablespoon ground pepitas (toasted pumpkin seeds)
Directions for Martini:
Spread the Chocolate Chipotle Powder out on a large plate. Rim 2 (8-ounce) martini glasses by rolling the edge of each glass on a clean wet sponge, then rolling the edge over the powder. Tap the glass gently to knock off the extra powder. Pour the rest of the ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously until the outside of the shaker is frosty. Strain immediately into the glasses and serve.
Directions for Chocolate Chipotle Powder:
Fold the ingredients together slowly and carefully so as not to knock the powder into the air as the chipotle powder can burn your nose and eyes.
